Best of 1989 (Taylor Version) Lyrics Instagram Captions

With the release of Taylor Swift's 1989 , fans will be revisiting her 2014 album for a number of reasons. This was Swift's official foray into the pop music genre, and she considers it a major turning point in her career.

"This 1989 album changed my life in countless ways," Swift said when announcing the re-release on Aug. 9, adding that she couldn't wait for fans to hear the new "From The Vault" track .

This album contains lyrics relevant to almost every type of emotion. "Blank Space" is arguably reputation -coded, filled with lines about unpredictability. “Shake It Off” is about releasing negative energy and people who bring you down. "Wonderland" depicts the imagery of Alice in Wonderland , evoking people's curiosity and confusion.

1989 was also full of love songs. "You're In Love" tells the story of frequent collaborator Jack Antonoff and his relationship with ex Lena Dunham. The lyrics of "Wildest Dreams" hint at a passionate love affair. Meanwhile, "Style" is widely rumored to be about Harry Styles.

As expected, Swift expresses this lyrically on "From The Vault." "Is it over now?" and "Now That We Don't Talk" seemed to refer to her relationship with Styles. She even looked back at certain moments that have become part of pop culture history (remember that blue dress?).

Basically, if you have a picture that needs the talent of a songwriter, Swift has you covered. Here are 89 lyrics from 1989 that are perfect for your Instagram captions because they'll never go out of style.
